The courses run by Physiopedia are unlike other courses available. Not only are they original, they are for physiotherapists written by physiotherapists, they are comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable. In 2017 we have more available than ever before. It’s going to be busy!
As a reminder the previous free courses have included topics such as Spinal Cord Injury, Lower Limb Amputee, Physiotherapy, Exercise and Physical Activity and most recently Cerebral Palsy. All of these courses offered an unrivalled learning experience and this certainly won’t change in the future. The Cerebral Palsy (CP) course had over 14,000 registrations from 179 countries all with different educational and clinical experience able to share their own perspectives of CP and help others experience CP globally. Where else is that possible?
Other courses in Physiopedia Plus (available for a small annual subscription) have included Low Back Pain, Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy, Tendinopathy, Introduction to Neurology, Introduction To The Knee and Understanding Pain. These courses are available to all full Physiopedia Plus members to do at any time that is convenient to them.
Coming in January we hit the ground running with the often difficult and misunderstood topic of global health. Across four weeks participants will be able to discuss burden of complex disease across different socioeconomic and environmental regions. How management and measurement differs across those regions and well as understanding the global threat of NCDs. As a taster have a look at this interview with Alessando Demaio. The four weeks will be challenging but at the end your outlook on the role of what you do as a clinician will change for the better.
Jump from January to March and there will be an opportunity to develop your understanding of the foot and ankle. Each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and 19 muscles and tendons incredibly that’s 25% of your total number of bones (if you count both feet). It’s going to be no mean feat to become an expert after this course but with our help you’ll be well on your way.
Spring forward to May when the huge topic of stroke will be covered which is quickly followed by the cervical spine in July. Both are closely related, as demonstrated by recent headlines related to Beauty Parlour Syndrome, and learning about one will only aid in your knowledge of other.
In September Clubfoot or congenital talipes equinovarus is the next topic to master and ever since Hippocrates first mentioned the condition in 400 B.C there has been disagreement in the exact cause. The course will help uncover why this is the case and hopefully improve the management of individuals with this condition throughout the world through techniques such as the Ponseti method.
All corners of physiotherapy are covered in these courses, the topics are as diverse as the therapists who will take part. Make sure you’re a part of it you will not regret it.
